Question about HP OfficeJet r40 InkJet Printer
Printer was "leaking" ink. Found on the right side "huge" deposits of ink. Tried
cleaning out ink (what a mess) after talking out gobbes of ink, I hooked printer
back up to pc and I get the message, "cartridge carriage blocked" telling me
to close cartridge covers, turn off printer than turn back on. No go! I can turn
printer off and open the latch to the cartridges and move the container with
the cartridges back and forth, but will not work when printer is turned on. I can
not see anything blocking the cartridge carriage. Now, did I move something
inside and I was cleaning the ink deposits? Is it time to take to repair shop?
Not sure about r40's, but look here about the leaking ink solution for G85's and DJ900's: http://www.fixyourownprinter.com/forums/inkjet/22399
